disable stacking-support


This command disables the stacking-support option on a Summit switch with dual-purpose hardware.

Syntax Description

This command does not have additional syntax.



Usage Guidelines

The Stacking-Support Option Control column in configure stacking-support stack-ports displays Yes in the rows for switch configurations for which you can disable the stacking-support option.

After you disable the stacking-support option, you must reboot the switch to activate the configuration change.

If you disable the stacking-support option on a switch and reboot, stacking communication stops and the data ports listed in configure stacking-support stack-ports will use Ethernet protocols instead of stacking protocols.


To disable the stacking ports, enter the following command:

* switch # disable stacking-support
This setting will take effect at the next reboot of this switch.


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.2.

Support for the Summit X480 switch configurations listed in the “Usage Guidelines” section was added in ExtremeXOS 12.5.
